I have enjoyed reading some of the threads posted on this great website! Therefore I have joined to read and put in my 2 bob worth of experience.
I have been to and from West Australia
and my native Norway
over the past 12 years, thoroughly enjoying sailing in both very adverse climates! Not to mentioned the diving
, I miss the WA warm waters a lot!
I have sailed for 40 years after my father got me into building and sailing a small dingy similar to an Optimist. I have had a number of different yachts and launches over the years but are now a faithful cruising catamaran
sailor but still enjoy racing
But the family
will never go back into mono's after the first trip on the Athena. Fast level and comfy is a requirement!
I have both raced and cruised with catamarans and are now in the process of buing my second Fountaine Pajot! The first was the Athena 38 and now the Belize 43
My day job as an electrical/instrument engineer
pays for the fun and I enjoy the trials and tribulations of completing the construction of large oil&gas installations.
For the time being southern Norway
is my home port and the plan is to charter
Lucky in my times off work
and do some local cruising of the wonderful arkipelagoes in this parts
of Norway and Sweden
As a keen multihull
sailer the discussions around safety
and cruising with pros and cons of various yachts is closed to my heart. Therefore looking forward to partisipate in those and many other discussion treads.
Happy leadfree sailing!
